Teen charged with fatal shooting of 12-year-old London Bean

A warrant has been issued for the 18-year-old's arrest.

An 18-year-old man has been charged with the fatal shooting of 12-year-old London Bean in Minneapolis.

A criminal complaint was filed Thursday against Jeremiah Marquise Grady in connection with the killing of Bean in north Minneapolis on the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept. 8.

The teenager is not in custody, with a warrant out for his arrest. The Minneapolis Police Department Thursday afternoon asked for the public's help locating Grady, noting he might have left the state. Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or submit electronically.

According to the criminal complaint, Grady is the older brother of a boy with whom Bean was fighting outside an apartment building on the 800 block of Aldrich Avenue.

The complaint says that Bean was winning the fight when an individual wearing a black ski mask appeared from the rear of a vehicle.

The individual shouted "Yeah! Wassup!" while wielding a handgun, pointing at people who proceeded to flee the scene.

He then approached Bean and opened fire, striking him in the chest and the abdomen, causing injuries that would claim his life two hours later in a local hospital.

A witness to the incident told police she believed the shooter was the older brother of the other boy in the fight. She was in a vehicle with her grandfather and yelled at her grandfather to drive away as the shooting started, with the shooter then turning and firing at their vehicle, leaving two bullet holes in it.

The witness ID'd the shooter via a Facebook account that belongs to Grady. Pictures on the account showed him wearing similar clothing to what was worn on the day of the shooting.

Investigators also received information that he'd recently bought a gun, and found social media posts that showed him holding the gun and "boasting" an hour after Bean's killing.

Grady has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder.

Bean's death was the third fatal shooting of a child in Minneapolis this year. It came after 9-year-old Trinity Ottoson-Smith and 6-year-old Aniya Allen were both fatally struck by stray bullets earlier this year.
